Feel bad about slamming Peavy yet? Mike G. Chicago, IL ___________________________________ This question makes the very broad assumption that I feel anything. I don’t. If I did I would already be cowering in shame because the Cardinals just dropped a series to the LOLstros. But this is baseball. It defies feeling. It defies logic. The Red Sox and Phillies in last place? The Dodgers and Nats routing? Peavy in control, flashing signs of the old whip-and-kill-em arm action? Why not? It’s only May. Anything could happen. Maybe I was a bit harsh on Peavy. Can you blame me? As far as baseballers go, Jake is pretty annoying. And up until this season, all he had really done in a White Sox jersey is yap yap yap with a string of poor performances following those empty words. I want my pitchers to pitch. Not yap. PITCH. Jake is finally doing that. Maybe his detached latissimus dorsi is properly attached again. His velocity is back. He’s hitting his spots. Why should a man being paid like a sup...

White Sox Ken “Hawk” Harrelson: worst announcer in all of sports? (video)

Who’s the biggest dead weight connected to the Chicago White Sox: Gordon Beckham? Brent Morel? How about Ken “Hawk”Harrelson who gave us 63 seconds of dead air Friday night on the game’s most pivotal play. Yes, over a minute of silence as the game’s critical home run unfolded. Obviously, it’s time HE GONE! Over the weekend, the Detroit Tigers took two of three from the...

Chicago White Sox: Pitching not a problem

Say what you want about the White Sox offense, but the pitching is second to none. Well actually, the Sox pitching is second only to three teams since they command the fourth lowest American League team ERA. Regardless, that stat is something to be proud of. The team’s early success on the mound is especially profound considering the bullpen situation during Spring Training. Before...

Chicago White Sox must start winning the close ones

To be honest, I was very optimistic going into this weekend’s series against the Detroit Tigers. Our Chicago White Sox were coming off a series loss against the division rival Cleveland Indians, but the Tigers have not necessarily been playing up to their potential. With Jake Peavy on the mound on Friday, it was looking like we would take advantage of their shortcomings and start...

Sell High on Paul Konerko?

36-year-old Paul Konerko is off to a tremendous start this season, hitting .347/.426/.614 with six bombs, 14 runs, and 17 RBI. His value might never be higher.Paulie has hit over .300 for the past two seasons and he’s off to a great start in 2012. However, it’s highly unlikely that he will sustain a BABIP over .360. The question is, when his AVG drops, how far will it go? Konerko...

White Sox-Indians Preview

Including pitching the 21st perfect game in major league history, Philip Humber has set a number of new career marks over his last three starts. The last two outings, though, have yielded forgettable blemishes. Humber will try to get back on track Monday in the first game of a day-night doubleheader, which kicks off a four-game series between his visiting Chicago White Sox and...

Game 2012.27: White Sox at Tigers

Though last night’s loss was pinned on Valverde, the offense has to take some of the blame. The offense went 2-8 with RISP and had only 2 doubles to go along with 7 singles. Other than Cabrera and Jackson, no one else has caught fire, and most of the guys are in minor slumps (Raburn is just Rayburn). I have every confidence that the team will hit. Not sure when, but we’ll be...
